On Monday, July 13, at 7:00 pm Council Chair Todd Turner, Council Members Davis and Taveras, will join me as special guests for a virtual discussion of County Budget and Tax Structure, including CB-48-2020, a bill that would enable the voters to decide in the November election about

Please register for the July 13 conversation
Tuesday evening, the Council held the public hearing for the Fiscal Year 2021 Annual Action Plan for Housing and Community Development and the Fiscal Years 2021-2025 Consolidated Plan for Housing and Community Development.
Thanks in part to work of the County Council and the Housing Opportunities for All Workgroup, which I am proud to co-chair, have done, we moved forward a new item in this consolidated plan, Section 108 Loan Guarantee Funds. This will allow Community Development Block Grant recipients with funds to leverage their grant allocation for access to low-cost, flexible financing for catalytic housing and/or economic development projects and gives Prince George's County access to $25 million in Section 108 financing.
Please share this list of food distribution in/near Council District 3 during the week of July 13.
